PLUME: five principles of harvesting

Chris Corrigan

This morning we began our Harvesting and Collective Sensemaking online course. Specifically these principles apply to harvesting in complex situations where you are using participatory methods to make sense of and make decisions. And what if collective learning WAS the harvest?

One introduction to harvesting

Chris Corrigan

about the art of harvesting. It includes an uncited hat tip to the Cynefin framework , and focuses on his particular field of education: Harvesting, as you know being from a tribe of long standing agrarian practice, (!) many systems do well at harvesting the artifacts (evaluations, studies, reports) but do very little in creating an architecture for implementing the results. Within schools there is a special kind of problem with harvesting. This is BAD harvesting.

Hosting an inner climate village

Chris Corrigan

As part of a global call to host Inner Climate Global Village s, tomorrow my daughter Aine and I will host a cafe at her learning centre with 16 young people aged 11-14 on these questions: What is it as young people that helps us feel connected to a big global issue like climate change without fear?

Exploring future possibilities by mapping “dispositionalities”

Chris Corrigan

We deliberately created a space where things were allowed to fail or radically change and we harvested learning all the way along. By simply starting, participants discovered oblique strategies and in some cases entirely new ways to address their basic desire for changing some element of their environment.

Disintermediated sensemaking

Chris Corrigan

And it also increases the time between an experience and the meaning making of that experience, which can be a fatal lag with strategy in emergent systems. Be really clear about the data you want people to produce and have a strategy for how they will make sense of it.

Trying to make developmental evaluation easier

Chris Corrigan

That means that we are not working with evaluating actions against desired end states, but instead noticing and paying attention to vectors and directions – intentions and hypotheses that help shape emerging strategy. There are all kinds of ways of implementing these strategies.

The community leader should know the subject, have energy for stimulating collaboration, have sufficient time to devote to leadership, and then regularly spend time increasing membership, lining up speakers, hosting calls and meetings, asking and answering questions, and posting information which is useful to the members. If so, ask if you can take over the leadership, or harvest the membership list to start the new one.

If I were exploring an “online community&# strategy for my company, I would not do it without a network strategy as well. There is mention of profile tools, which help manifest identity, but not about how community hosts can nurture a sense of individual and group identity in a community. So some attention to how identity shows up and can be nutured is a key strategy. Is your strategy to work with or fight against that dynamic?
